I want to show the truth according to the Bible but I also want to be loving. I want to show God's words, values and guidelines when it comes to sexuality, sexual relations and marriage and I want to be faithful to the Bible text.
At the same time, I want to show God's mercy and love for all people, for people who are fighting for their human value. The Bible clearly shows that homosexuality is wrong. But through the grace of Jesus Christ, God can save gay people. God loves us. He has created us.

God loves all people
God loves you who are gay, lesbian, bisexual or born with an unclear sex absolutely. You are loved by God!
I came out as homosexual when I was 18-19 years old and have lived openly as homosexual since then. About 20 years later, in October 2013 I decided to stop living out my homosexual desires because of what God's Word says in the Bible. Since God is the creator of the universe and life, he sets the rules, he has done everything.
God created man and woman to live together in lifelong loving relationships and in such way maintain life and and pass it on. It is a very cool way that God has chosen to pass on life when a man and a woman have intercourse and so create a new life, a new human. That is the intention God has with our sexuality. God has intended sexual acts, sexual relations, and marriage for heterosexual couples, between a man and a woman.
Some people do not have a clear gender identity, so there is a little harder to judge.
What does the Bible say about homosexual acts and relationships?
The Bible strongly condemns all homosexual behavior. Nowhere in the Bible can you find a word that blesses homosexuality. Gay acts and relations are sin, wrong and against God's will, God's order.
If you live a homosexual life, God wants you to change your lifestyle. This is very difficult, I know from personal experience. But the power of Jesus is great. He will help you if you ask him.
I think we should treat gay people with love, kindness and respect.
I myself can get homosexual feelings for men sometimes but I have to say that nowadays they very rarely actually come. We should respect people and love each other, cherish each other. We should also have respect for God's Word, the Bible, and what is true, just, and righteous. I have lived as an open gay for 20 years. I radically changed my lifestyle in 2013/2014. This is not an easy question for me. It has been a huge internal conflict. The feelings of guilt and shame have been very heavy, almost killing me sometimes. So because of this it has been easier for me to think that homosexuality is ok, then I don't have to worry or feel guilt. If you are a Christian, you believe that there is morality that is from God, right and wrong. And you also accept that God is your Lord, your Creator, your Master. When God finally opened my eyes and made me focus on the Bible, his words and what is written there (Romans), then I realized that I had to make a total change in my life because homosexuality is sin and against God's will. I had to give up something I didn't want to give up. I had to give up something that I loved very much - my own sexuality, my homosexuality. It was very valuable to me. I lived for sex. I was completely blind for the fact that it was a sin and all the other sins it had brought into my life such as watching porn, going to video clubs and having sex, fornication, one night stands etc.
God does not want me to live as a homosexual, it is a sin and it is not part of His plan for humanity. In addition, my soul was almost poisoned by all the porn I was watching so I'm glad I got rid of it. I've done two more pages (one and two) about my life as a gay and my fight with God and the church. I think we should all treat each other kindly and lovingly. I do not support violence or hatred against homosexuals. If you show respect, you might get it back. I want the Bible - God's Word to be the authority of my life.
A liberal church automatically gets extra points, the liberal message sounds so generous and positive: "non-judgemental" "non-prejudice" "equality" "modern interpretations" etc.
But if you agree that the Bible is Gods holy word then you might realise that this might also be inconvenient for you. We shall not accept sin in our lives. It has not been easy, the guilt and the shame has been heavy for me. Yet I have made the decision to trust in the Bible as God's word and to accept that homosexuality is a sin, an abomination before the Lord. After all, He is the Creator and the Judge. I had to leave my gay life and I have. I broke up with my lover and friend which was painful.
Nowadays I almost never have sexual feelings for men and if I get it so I don't act on them. Now I also have sexual feelings for women. I thought that was impossible for me before. I don't have any sex nowadays and I almost never think of sex. I don't watch porn, I don't masturbate and I don't surf online on gay pages. I live with Jesus and it feels good! I feel that God speaks to me in my daily life. Prayer and Bible reading are what I fill my time with nowadays. I pray to God for four longer prayer sessions a day and have a quick prayer before I go to bed. It feels like God is responding, but some prayer sessions may feel more difficult than others.
If you are in an argument with the Lord or with the Bible about how you live you are probably living in sin and that's why you have to defend yourself. You make an argument to justify what you already know is wrong. When you live righteous you don't have to argue over your lifestyle.
God loves all people
Homosexuality is a sin. But God loves His creation. He loves all people, even homosexual people bisexual, transgender people - everyone. God can separate sin and person. He wants us to repent of our sins and stop sinning. Sexual sin dominates this world. If you are openly active gay and sex liberal then I want you to know that God loves you very much but he does not like your liberal lifestyle, he condemns it. But you are loved by the creator of the universe. If you are a person born with an unclear gender identity, God also loves you just as much as he loves each other.
But we have this life on us to establish a friendship with God. When we die, God will know if we are His children or not.
God has opened the way to Him through Jesus Christ
A little further down the page, there are Bible words showing that the Bible says that homosexuality is sin and against God's will.
The big question for me when I made my lifestyle change has been to be faithful to the Bible text. But at the same time, I have become too judmental against myself and even towards other gays. It has been a quiet attitude that I have had inside myself. It's been so wrong and I'm sorry for that. I'm so fed up at my condemning attitude. God hates sin, our wrong doings. He does not hate us. But he wants us to change and he stands with open arms waiting for us.
God has spoken to me in dreams and shown me several openly gay people, people living in gay couple relationships and let me understand that he sees these people as his children.
With this, I believe that people who live in gay couples can be saved and have eternal life in paradise because of what Jesus Christ did for us on the cross when he gave his life for us. He died and took the punishment for our sins so that we may go free and have eternal life with God. This claim that people living in gay couples can be saved and have eternal life in paradise goes directly against what is stated in 1 Corinthians 6-9. But keep in mind that the robber who hung next to Jesus on the cross also entered paradise. He was a thief. He died like a thief. I am faithful to the Bible to the extent that I agree that homosexuality is wrong and sin, against God's will and that the Church should not bless same-sex marriage. At the same time, the Christian message is that God can and will forgive our errors and sins through what his son Jesus Christ has done for us as he sacrificed his life for us. Through Jesus' righteousness, his suffering, death, and resurrection, God can forgive sins. So my stance is: The church or state should not bless same-sex marriage, that's wrong, against God's will. At the same time: God can and will forgive sin, we are all sinners and we must forgive each other, we must love one another. God can forgive and save gay people who live out their homosexuality. Divorcing just because you feel like doing it and getting married again with someone else is also wrong. It is called adultery according to the Bible and is sinful, it is against God's will. Even there, I think God can forgive. I believe that if you live a gay or lesbian life, God wants you to change how you live. God is love but He is also holy. Think of God's Word and His Law.
We shall all stand before the court of God one day to be tried for eternity. Our final destination will be either paradise or hell. Those who are under the protection of Jesus Christ are saved and may come to heaven. Modern liberal churches often forget about hell, don't they?
Although I acknowledge that the homosexuality is sin and against the will of God, I believe that God can and will receive LGBTQ people like His children because He loves us.
My advice: stay away from gay culture
I would urge you who lives as gay to keep you away from the gay culture as much as possible because it is so incredibly infected by porn, sexual immorality, superficiality, drugs and sin. You just get empty and destroyed living that way.
God is a holy God and almighty. He is a consuming fire. Think about what the Bible says and God's wrath over sin. It's true. Heaven or hell is not a game.
Think of the grace we now have through Jesus Christ for those who profess Him as Lord. But also consider the words of the Bible.
Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.
'You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.
If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.
Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality

And that just means accepting Jesus as your Lord and saviour, and which means he becomes your boss. When he's your lord man, he's your boss, he's your master, he tells you what to do. And you live your life the way he wants you to live it. His will for you is not to live a gay lifestyle, that I can guarantee you. He has a much better plan for your life.
(The video is a typical example of youtube censorship. They have delayed the sound so that the sound and picture are not synchronized. The video is simply too good for the illuminati who want to spread gay liberalism. Therefore, they do their best to destroy a powerful testimony that speaks against the gay agenda. this is hidden censorship.)
God is holy and he will not change his word or his law. You need Jesus to get saved and take his word serious. He is God's son and he loves you. What could be better?
